Summer Book Club on Connected Teaching

Summer Book Club on Connected Teaching

CELT is hosting a summer teaching book club on Harriet Schwartz’s book Connected Teaching, starting at 12pm on Wednesday, June 23rd and meeting every two weeks through the rest of the summer. We’d love for you to join us for the conversation about this book that explores the connections between teaching and relationships which is central to Lasallian pedagogy both online and face-to-face. A few of the interesting topics will be:

Connected teaching when there isn’t enough time
Assessment as a relational practice
Setting appropriate boundaries with learners
Power and relationships in the classroom
